Following a Committee Meeting it has been discussed and agreed to extend our opening hours for the Club as from Monday 3rd August when we will be closely reverting back to pre-Covid opening times, albeit we will not be opening the Club until 12.00pm each day.  We would respectfully ask that you do not attempt to gain entry into the Club before these times; the closing times are the times that you must have vacated the club.

Entry is by card only, presented to the Committee Member/Volunteer on duty.  This is to allow the club to fully adhere to the Government’s Track and Trace System.

We have also agreed that one Member is allowed to sign in 2 guests at the discretion of the on duty Committee Member.

Sports Bar

As from Saturday 1st August, the Sports Bar will reopen to Members,  but, social distancing will still have to be observed.  There will be a limit of people allowed in the Sports Bar at any one time and if too many Members wish to use the Sports bar late entry Members will have to use the main room.  This is to ensure the safety of our staff and our Members.    Entry to the Sports Bar will only be possible from the main room.  Members' guests will not be allowed in the Sports bar.

The rules currently observed in the main room will need to be observed in the Sports Bar.  Please help us to help you and your fellow Members. 


Polite request to all our Smokers, please do not smoke or congregate directly in front of the door, please smoke to the side, and if raining, please use the umbrellas supplied in the foyer. Please also observe social distancing rules in place even outside.

Live Entertainment will commence fortnightly; on Saturday 15th August (Caryn Morant) and on 29th August (Martin Boucher).  Depending on the support given this may be more frequent in September and going forward.    Obviously the Club would ask that any guidance in place at that time is observed.


We are looking to commence all other activities within the Club i.e. Bingo, Skittles, Tote etc. when we are able.


Thank you for your continued patience and to all of our Members who have attended the Club since opening a Big Thank You, and to those Members who have not been able to attend so far, we look forward to seeing you as soon as possible.

Attendance is critical to the survival of the club, the extended hours and entertainments will only be possible if you support your club.



Please be aware, you must not come into the club if you are directed to self-isolate on returning from holiday destinations where the government has deemed you must do so for 14 days. You may come into the club on the 15th day after returning.

Standard rules

The foyer will be manned by a Committee Member from 12 noon to 1/2 hour before closing time.

Things to take into consideration when attending the Club:

Members only – Entry by card only - No card, no entry

• Your name and time of entry will be recorded in order to observe the Government’s rules on track and trace

• Two Guests per member

• Please observe social distancing

• Please use hand sanitizer on entering the Club

• Please only use serving areas at the Bar and definitely no congregating at the bar

• Return empty glasses to right hand side of bar by kitchen door - This will safeguard our Bar Staff

• Contactless payments preferred.

• Sports Bar entrance in corridor will be locked.

• Snooker players – One game only if names on board.

• When snooker game finished, please take all balls out of pockets and wipe clean using the wipes provided, and place back on table.

If you are the last player, please put the cover on the table.

• Own cues to be used - the Club's cues are not provided.

This is a generalised list of things the Club has to respectfully ask its Members to adhere to in the current climate. Once we are able to relax these we will inform you. When visiting the Club please ensure that you observe any signage placed on the premises.

Please use common sense at all times, if we are found not to be adhering to Government guidelines we may find ourselves in a position of having to close our doors again. Please help us to ensure that this does not happen.
